yes I have pictures of Lavang cathedral (or basillica) before and after it was bombed.

vn has 25 dioceses, so we have 25 cathedrals....cathedral is pretty much the same as church, it's just that cathedral has a throne of the bishop.

Each diocese has atleast 1 bishop and 1 arch bishop....again, cathedral-church, bishop - arch bishop, they're pretty much the same, they're just the tittle. Cardinal is a higher rank than bishop, 1 step next to the pope.....I think VN has 5 cardinals

Lavang is a Holy site
Tra Kieu is a sacred site
both acknowledge by the Vatican.

there are 4 major basillicas in the world and they're all in Rome, all other basillicas in the world are "minor basillicas"

Vn has 2 basillicas: SAigon NotreDame basillica and Lavang basillica...........although Lavang has only the tower left after the war.
To receive the tittle "basilica" by the Vatican, the church building has to be in Criss-cross Romanesque architecture with remarkable history attached to it.

in Vnmese the term basilica translates to: Vuong Cung Thanh Duong

Wow, I didn't know Vietnam has so many churches. Some of them are very nice, except they certainly need renovation and new paintings. Too bad, Vietna m is still so poor, probably why some churches are still in bad shapes

Now, I know why so many Catholic priests coming so often to the US from Vietnam to ask for donations, nowadays. I will, and I hope Catholic followers in this forum, remind myself the church pictures here, and will donate much more than I used to give. Churches need to be renovated. It is really for a good cause.

Thanks bang for taking time to post beautiful pictures here. It's amazing how you have so many. You're

so i go to church once a year and i bet ya i know more about the catholic church history and the bibble than people go to church everyday.

yeah why did nguyen van thuan died so soon? he could've waited after the pope, then he could be the first asian pope, even if it's just for few months then he could die after that.....but no, jebus had to take him away, and gave vn no pope......sometimes I don't even understand Jebus.
yeah that was a great loss...but non-Catholic ppl in VN im sure they dun know'bout diz coz de communist gov prevented de news to spread over (not any single newspaper had the news about this,ppl could only know this from churches or by BBC),coz he has the title 'ke phan quoc' given by de commu & was expelled.If i discuz diz more,surely sum handsome guys wont b happy so i stop here.

correction: Ninh Binh is a province not a diocese.....Ninhbinh is under Phatdiem diocese.

I only have pictures of Ninh Binh for now from the internet.
other provinces in northern Vietnam with the same equivalent with Ninh Binh in term of old beautiful churches are: Ha Tay, Nam Dinh, Hanoi, Bui Chu, Ha Nam Ninh, Lao Cai.

so what i'm posting here are only fraction of what VN has to offer.

visit this website to see we're not the only one interested in churches in Vietnam
